Came here for food, parmo's 10/10, fajita's 10/10 and lager 10/10. It's a smart place and the staff are all absolutely spot on. Best pub in Boro.

Came here as part of our works pub crawl and as always, it was absolutely spot on. Friendly bar staff who you can have good banter with, nice drinks and good surroundings. I think this is maybe my favourite bar in Teesside.

My friend and I visited here. It seems to be highly popular with all ages. Modern, bright, lively and situated in the heart of the university area. We would definitely go back.

No because it's a pub. If you want halal food there's about 1,000 other places down the road. There's only about 6 places in Boro that aren't halal.
